Properly my first international win on the Welsh rally 1999 driving a production Subaru against more than 15 factory teams, that closely followed by our LSPR rally win in 2013 when it was winner takes all with Ken Block.

My parents, they were great competitors and it's them I have always wanted to please, once I started competing in Rally Richard Burns was my mentor and I even won my first championship driving for his team.

All things I can't have during season, pasta would be very high up there but don't have very often, and special treat would be home made apple crumble. I love sea food, so that's what I eat most with great veg. And good cup of tea.

Favorite Movie?
I really like Adam Sandler movies, "Happy Gilmore" is classic.
